Ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald batters Australia's east coast

Updated 28 January 2013, 16:35 AEDT

Much of Australia's east coast has taken a battering from an ex-tropical cyclone over the past days.

It's not over yet, with rivers throughout the region still rising.

Homes have been inundated in the cities of Bundaberg and Gladstone, and there is a major flood crisis developing in the Lockyer Valley near Australia's third biggest city of Brisbane.

Thousands of Brisbane residents have been told their homes and businesses could go under.
